Thankyou to everyone who left a comment!! I can now say that the following 3 people will be getting hold of a child's oven mitt very soon::
Bertha  Keltie  Sue
I said in the last post that the whole reason this came about was because Pia kept taking my oven mitt and playing with it - waving this large mitt around and not being able to grab hold of anything properly. I must send enormous amounts of credit to Alex at Moonstitches - it was her oven mitt she made for me as part of an earlier backtack which inspired this whole episode. I've used her mitt every single day - it is very much part of our kitchen and my life in the kitchen. I have often looked at it and thought I should make one....but hers is so lovely and simple and beautifully made that I can't bear to not use that particular one. But I can make Pia one of her own...
And now you can make your child one too. I have done a simple pattern instruction sheet with template in .pdf form to download. You can use whatever material you want, change the dimensions etc and make it your own. It should fit a child up to about 8 years old, maybe even older. I hope you enjoy making it! I will add this to the pattern page when I get a moment as well.
